It made quite an impact, and has been hurting ever since. I saw the doctor yesterday, and he says there’s a probable fracture in my little toe which will take a couple of weeks at least to fully heal.
It’s certainly got a handsome bruise, and every time I try and walk on it, I get a painful reminder about how vital the little toe is to the foot. Thankfully I’ve been able to work from home for a couple of days.
Fortunately unlike Maisie, pictured here in 2005, it’s unlikely the toe will need to be amputated.
But the lesson here is that it really pays to look where you’re going.
